    If I were an African-American in this country, I would demand access to my own arsenal.

    What a weird world we live in...

    I really wish people didn't have to add qualifiers....

    sure, she may be black...but why not just say one woman's opinion, or one American's opinion?

    What does sex, or race have to do with the message?

    The young lady is correct in her statements. Sad as our history is, but true

    I agree, but in this case, the majority of Africn-Americans vote Democrat, and follow the "black leaders", which pushes an anti-gun agenda. When a "black person" comes out in defense of the 2nd amendment, like Ice-T, or this lady, it's kind of noteworthy...

    Especially now that the news is trying to sell the story that old racist white guys oppose Obamas gun control measure.

    And super mega ultra especially, when they do this!!!!!

    Anybody here realize that the left is more racist than us. They feel that the minorities need help to get jobs and scholarships, isn't that like telling them they can't do it themselves so they NEED to have help with it because they are stupid. I know otherwise.

    LOL!!! We should start a group, 'People Against African American Gun Ownership'.
    Then watch the lame stream media try to figure that one out.
    'Uh... EVERYONE has a right to own guns- uh, I mean...'

    I do believe that a qualifier is necessary in this case. We don't have a lot of anti-gun groups here in NC. The few anti-gun groups we do have are for black people like the NAACP. Most crimes committed with a gun are blacks shooting blacks. (1) Half the murders in the US are black people shooting other blacks. Sadly, those are facts, not a stereotype or a generalization. Yet, in 2005 blacks made up 13% of the US population.
    1 DOJ statistics.

    All of those stats are true. I'm a criminal justice major and we look into a lot of that stuff...

    But her video didn't mention any of that. Her video isn't any more "potent" in our cause because she is black.

    It's just another American standing up for their/our rights.

    I just don't agree with making the distinction. We sould unite under the cause, not pick and choose whose arguments/statements hold more powere because of who they are.

    You are right, we SHOULD not care if the veiws are from someone that is black or white, male or female, rich or poor. The thing is, most people in this world DO care. This woman will be seen by some on the pro 2nd Amendment side as proof that the anti 2nd Amendment side can be converted. Others will give her a better ear cause they will not listen to a white guy like me. If we are going to protect the 2nd Amendment, we need all the help we can get.

    I believe we're getting away from the point of this lady's statement.

    Apologies for using the qualifier Lady.
